Lions Roar Over AMCATS

BOSTON, Mass. –Emerson Softball's topped Anna Maria 16-0 (5) to improve to 22-7 on the year and 16-2 in GNAC action.

Game one saw Alexandra Magistro take to the circle in front of a solid faithful at the Boston Common Friday afternoon whom she didn't disappoint as she allowed only 15 at bats for Anna Maria in her third career perfect game, completely baffling the AMCAT line-up.

The Lions put most of their runs on the scoreboard right off the bat in the first inning as they collected 10 hits on the AMCATS tab to blast nine runs onto the non-existent Boston Common scoreboard with RBIs from Kelsey Tuthill, Shannon Torosian, Alexandra Magistro, Bianca Buono and nearly the entire EC line-up as they went through the line-up nearly twice in one inning alone.

While Magistro finished her masterpiece, the Lions tabbed another on the AMCATS in the third with an RBI single up the middle for Kelsey Tuthill as they closed out a quick 10-0 win.

In game two Alicia Daniele took the ball and on top of nearly throwing a perfect game went 3-for-3 with five RBIs for Emerson.

A three run first gave the Lions a bit of a cushion with Alexandra Magistro finding herself not quite finished with being the highlight with a two-RBI in-the-park homerun getting added to her tab on the day in the first.

Freshman Elizabeth Clark collected Anna Maria's only hit of the game with a single in the fifth inning.

Anna Maria returns to action on Saturday when they travel to Pine Manor for a GNAC doubleheader starting at Noon.
